While most of those coming by ImprobableIslanders
are members, and often players of Improbable Island
, there are some who visit who are neither. Seeing a wall of text as you check out the site can be daunting, but believe me, text-based adventure and role playing can be just as rewarding, if not more so than other MMORPGs. Improbable Island is
an MMORPG, only text instead of 3D graphics, but it's a Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game where you actually role play, and not just see the game world from first person perspective as in other ones, like World of Warcraft.
After receiving a note from a fellow player about an archive
of stuff made by players, I decided to make this journal, hoping to save some art stored only there from being forgotten and lost. There's some solid gold nuggets there, and I want to highlight a few here. One of our players, let's call him Aer after his character, made a "Let's Play" video. Fair warning though, Aer's a loud-mouthed Aussie which could rival Corporal Punishment
in who's shouting more. If that's no problem, check out his video here
. If you'd rather watch a calmer "playthrough" (there really is no end to Improbable Island, so there's no "playthrough", but more like an introduction to the game), you should check out McGee's playlist here
instead. Another fair warning, after the eight videos in the list there's five videos dedicated to a game called Pony Island. Don't fret, it has nothing to do with My Little Pony, and it's actually quite interesting, even disturbing.
One of the things I want to highlight from the page are some catchy songs made and preformed by a (former?) player of the game named Icterid, called NewHome
, a great rendition of the NewHome anthem "NewHome is Full of Newbs", and Me and Horatio Entwhistle
. If you wonder who Horatio Entwhistle is, he's the personification of the Improbability Drive, and having tea with Horatio is an euphemism for fighting the Drive. Here's some examples of great images who never made it to ImprobableIslanders
